Trimble Inverse 4 Mountain Bike-1988

Trimble Inverse 4 Mountain Bike-1988

With the Trimble Inverse 4, designer Brent Trimble revised a shape that was first popular in the 1800s- the cross or girder frame. In early bicycle design, this shape was rejected as it was considered too flexible; it was quickly replaced with the familiar diamond frame. Using modern technology, Trimble was able to solve the flexibility issues of the design by using a combination of carbon fiber and fiberglass to create a light yet strong frame. The large diameter sections contribute to its stiffness.
